Missionary Monday - update



Subject: Waterfalls!

Parents,

Well I just thought that you guys should know, that this week was great! Went flying by really fast, but it went great. Sounds like things going back home also went pretty good. Sorry for emailing so late. Me and some of the other missionaries in our Zone, really took advantage of the P day. We went down to a town called Rio Bueno (Good river) to hike up there to get to a waterfall. It was so tight. I am going to send you guys some of the pics, because really it was one of the coolest things that I have seen. Now, the only problem is that it took almost the whole day, and I really don’t have much time to write you guys.

I loved the pics that you guys sent me. I really love getting the pics haha and I am sure you guys feel the same. It is good to see how the things are changing, and how some of the things still stay the same. Talking about things staying the same, I really still am a fan of the French Toast. I actually made it this morning for my comp and I. I haven’t found syrup here yet, but we are just using jam. I also think that I am going to make pancakes. I gotta get the recipe because here they don’t sell Bisquik haha.

To answer your questions, I haven’t gotten the package, but then again, I don’t get it tomorrow. We have a zone conference tomorrow and I will be in Osorno all day tomorrow. I think that I am going to take advantage of that time also and buy some clothes and a jacket. I don’t think that I told you guys this, but I lost that sweet jacket that I had, the black one. So it looks like I am going to have to buy another one. Not sure how much it is going to cost, but I really do need one. I can really feel that the weather is starting to change. Daniela hasn’t come back yet, she wont get back for another 2 weeks, and then it wont be another 2 weeks until she gets baptized…..so we just gotta be patient. I don’t know if I told you guys but her mom started reviecing the missionaries also and loves it. They both ran into the missionaries almost at the same time, the difference is that she was here in La Union, and her mom was in Santiago haha. Suprisingly I don’t have allergies. At first when the weather started like this, hot and stuff, I had it. But I took some pills and ever since then, haven’t had anything at all, so I am holding up good. Also my sunscreen is good to go. I still have tons.

Sorry that this email is going to be so short, I really don’t have a lot of time. I love you guys sooo much. Have a great week! Looking forwared to the packages 





I know that we talked about NOT going down there to pick him up, but pictures like this make me want to change my mind! And WTC? The pictures were all the right way when I published!!

That makes me want to go with you.

That would be a hard choice not to go with those beautiful scenes.

He is so awesome Melissa.

Que's parents went to get him in Boliva and they had a blast. And that was BOLIVIA. You totally need to go and pick him up.
